They were both designed by real good Italian designers, so looked really well :)

My friend has Futura and loves it, another got Capo. Nice bikes indeed and look very modern now still. They all have edgy design, but no "overly sharp" edges like Nuda.

I cant believe Nuda designed by italian

Anyway - who cares if it performs great.

Are you really an industrial designer?

Ya know when I rode through Oregon I recall the people being more open to other people's opinions.
My beliefs in design are clearly stated on the previous page, sorry to hurt your feelings about an inanimate object.....

btw I only said I received my MA in ID. I worked (and had a studio) for around 6 years in one part of the field before I went into project management/consulting. But I do keep up on the Trans ID world, and consider myself to still have a good eye on what works and what doesn't when looking at forms and functions.

From reading this thread it seems there's quite a few people who are also turned off by these new bikes - In the end it doesn't matter, we might as well be talking about our tastes in women....

I've been reading the last few days about the Nuda... and i'm impressed...i think its amazing looking and the "new" engine has enough power and tourque... i rode and R1200r this summer and i was testing the nuda is going to be evem more awesome i may assume ...cause it has only 10 hp less but 50 kg less...i am definatly taking into consideration this bike as my next one...I am a bit concerned about the comfort and the range... some sites predict somwhere around 280 km...but others less...i don't really know the real story here...but if it will get 250km from a thank...its good enough for my touring spirit..:)
I've seen that they advertise the side bags? does anybody know how much they can carry ? and if you can put a topcase...?... it would be interesting to know...

How much is that doggie in the window?

Just snapped this in the dealer showcase in Rome. Didn't see any on the street. It's not as alien in person.

After I checked it over twice (Milano then Brussels) I even considered it as my next bike at some point. At the end of the day I can avoid looking at it as long as it rides well.

But then...then I checked price tag,weighted my options and decided to pass on it. 9900 Euro basic price for non-R model in Belgium, 10990 in Netherlands. And non-R does have few "cost savings" in fit and finish as well.
Specs are great, but I think this ain't long distance bike by any means - it was OK to sit on, but lack of fuel capacity is first thing. Then there is a problem that you need to stuff it with various crash bars as it certainly won't crash "well" and you end up with more weight...
Pity really. I liked power/weight/specs a lot...

.... back to wanting Morini Granpasso :)

Its alot better in the flesh under the sun, the standard pipe sounds good already but its even better with an aftermarket pipe, sounds like no bike i have heard before, more souped up v twin than a paralell twin, only thing i dislike is the headlight, if it poked out forward like a ktm light instead of backwards it would suit the bike better, i also think its good quality, but then again i also want a ktm 690smcr or a triumph tiger 800xc, i havent made my mind up yet!

Same crank angle as a Harley, but far more angry sounding. Fantastic!

Oh and a comfy seat.

This thing looks just as tall as my 950SM. But if it's chassis is BMW based, does that mean a rear shock in a F650GS length would fit it, and lower the rear a bunch?

Doesn't "Nuda" mean neaked? A neaked bike that's called Nuda doesn't seem like a big deal to me but, I'm not trying to tell you how to think. I dislike certian bikes for reasons that I know others would think were silly.

I sat on one today.

Very impressive. Looks much better in the flesh.

Lots of leg room. Very relaxed ergos.

Ride tomorrow.
